Re:anaerobic athletes ???
Why do you want the specific attributes of a sprinter for a substantially different sport?
For muay thai/boxing you need a range of things, some of which the sprinter doesn't have to consider: a muay thai fight is 15 mins long for a start, 100m can be done in under 10 seconds, completely different.
Your cardio sessions don't need to look like a sprinters.
There's more than one way to skin a cat, the Thai's do lots of long distance running at a steady pace. Boxers also seem to do this alot still.
MMA fighters on the whole take a more progressive approach and do some form of high intensity work that more closely mimics the conditions of a fight: tabata is one protocol, but there are loads, sprints, step running, sled dragging, circuits etc etc.
You need to be explosive and powerful for 15 mins, some of that work will be very hard, some less so.
Sparring and muay thai drills are the best conditioning you can get by definition, and any 'extra' cardio should supplement that and not detract from it.
